Growth Technology Liquid Oxygen
- Growth Technology – great value-for-money additives
- Releases oxygen into your nutrient solution
- Helps to create a sterile root-zone, killing root-diseases
- Increased oxygen level gives increased root activity
- Can be used in any grow medium
- Can be used in any type of grow-system
- Not suitable for organic growing or when using friendly microbes
- Securely bottled for no leakages
- Assists the oxidization of metallic elements to make them available for plant use.
- Helps stimulate protein production at a cellular level, enhancing photosynthesis.
- Helps break down the carbohydrates created through photosynthesis.
- Increases root zone activity – getting more nutrients to the plant.
- Promotes more plant vigour.
Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen is a strong solution of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). When it is mixed into your nutrient solution the hydrogen peroxide breaks down into a molecule of water (H2O) plus an oxygen atom (O). The oxygen atom will then join another oxygen atom and form a stable dissolved O2 molecule which “oxygenates” the water or it will attack microbes or other organic molecules and break them down. In this way, Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen creates a highly oxygenated and sterile root-zone. Roots thrive in a highly oxygenated solution and the lack of root-diseases ensures they do not get root-rot.
The sterile solution that this product creates means that it is unsuitable for organic growing or for use with other products which contain or require friendly microbes. Peroxide will kill these microbes along with the unfriendly types, making this product unsuitable for use in these grow situations.
Use Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen can be used right the way through the plant’s life from cutting to harvest. Liquid Oxygen is suitable for use with plants grown in any medium and in any type of grow-system except organic farming methods or grows which utilise friendly microbes. Simply make up your nutrient solution as normal and add 1ml/Litre of Liquid Oxygen and mix well. Check and adjust the pH as necessary.
Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen breaks down fairly quickly and needs to be added every day to be effective.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water, in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
WARNING: Growth Technology – Liquid Oxygen is an aggressive liquid. Aggressives are types of substance which can cause damage to skin and clothing and can cause burns. This group of products includes, but is not limited to pH Up (potassium hydroxide), pH Down (nitric acid, phosphoric acid, citric acid), Liquid oxygen (hydrogen peroxide) and products containing liquid forms of silica/silicon. Always add straight to your reservoir water and mix well straight away. Do not mix aggressive substances with any other product while in their concentrated form. When using, always wear suitable protection (gloves, goggles etc.) and keep out of the reach of children at all times.

There is no doubt about the benefits of using hydrogen peroxide properly in a hydroponics system. This becomes especially true if your nutrient reservoir solution is maintained above 72 degrees. Warm water holds less dissolved oxygen and therefore encourages the growth of more viruses, fungi, and anaerobic bacteria. Using hydrogen peroxide adds oxygen to the water and cleans it of pathogens. In hydroponic gardening, there are harmful bacteria strains that will thrive in low oxygen content water. The warmer it gets, the less oxygen it holds.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) will counteract the chlorine many public water providers use to sterilize tap water. Well, water may be high in methane and organic sulfates, and H2O2 will remove both. Many disease-causing organisms and spores are killed by the free oxygen that H2O2 releases. Hydrogen peroxide will help eliminate existing infections and prevent future ones. It will prevent bacterial wilt, Pythium fungi, fusarium fungi, and others.
Not only is oxygen a major component of the plant structure itself and one of the main elemental nutrients the plant feeds upon, but it also performs many important functions within the plant participating in all metabolic processes.
To get a head start on seed germination, whether you’re starting herbs, flowers, vegetables, or fruits, you can speed up the sprouting process and protect your seedlings from mildews and moulds with simple hydrogen peroxide.
“Never an issue using GoneToPot in my 3 years of shopping with them. I nearly had an issue once but it was a problem with the courier company and GTP sorted the whole issue for me. Splendid company.”
“Got my box of Snoops Nutrients and Liquid Oxygen last week. Thanks very mucgh for the fast and efficient delivery. I look forward to dealing with you again in the future.”
“ Great company and great products. I am a new customer but having used other websites and having that knowledge of how bad they are and being bale to pick out the bad companies, I can safely say that this isn’t one of those sites. I have placed several orders now with you chaps at GTP. “
